So I've recently discovered the many joys of Dual-boxing and am running 2 DH's now. One is full maraudeur fire build other is garwulf, 4 pc marauder, T&T phys build, equip not yet finished.
I was wondering how to decide on the tier to farm rifts in, I usually only play solo (dualboxing of course). I tried to time a few rifts, and got the following:
doing t5, depending on the rift, I kill rift boss in between 7-12 minutes
doing t6, a few deaths due to shit packs sometimes make it last in between 18-25 min.
I guess the increased loot chance from t5 to t6 doesnt justify double the time, but I wanted to get confirmation.
As I said my second DH is only 2 days old, so no mats yet to reroll sockets in chest or pants (damn expensive.. 40 and 50 yellow items for 1 reroll....??) and he uses a STR RORG because I didnt get another one yet
Here are my both profiles if you would be interested in seeing them
Thats how I feel as well... sometimes I even contemplate if farming t1 or f3 is a better and more efficient way to farm then t4 or t5.. only because of the raw speed of killing.. more mobs killed in the same amount of time on top of more games per house should yield more legendary drops right? I'm not sure but I'm certain someone out there has done the math to see the heath vs drop rate ratio. That number will give you the best torment lvevel to farm.. I personally like to farm t4 or t5 , I can move through it quick enough and the XP I get per hour (around 500 to 680million) is enough to feel like I'm still leveling progressively above P415. Not to mention, selling the yellows as well as snatching the gold in a t4 or 5 rift equals out to around 1.5-2million an hour.
In short, my advice, do T4 till your wicked geared then T5 if you want a little More gold and XP slightly sacrificing your drop rate.. although when your wicked geared you don't need as many trash drops as much as you do gold for rerolling perfect stats.
I like going as high as i can or i get bored. Everyone is different and at the end of the day its video game meant for entertainment, so do what you find most enjoyable, you dont win a prize for winning the game.
